For the C#5 chord in the verse you could use the 9th fret option
(9-11-11-X-X-X) if you want to, but I dont think thats what Billy Joe does.
VERSES:
 G#5C#5A#5C#5
 I been waiting a long time for this m...
 G#5C#5A#5C#5
 destined, for anything at a-a-all 
You just repeat that for all the verses, kicking in the overdrive where
necessary.
BRIDGE:
 F5F5/ED#5A#5
Well Im so much closer than I have ever known
CHORUS:
The 'Wake up' and 'better thank your lucky stars' bit. Listen to the CD to
get the rhythm of this.

GI--6-6-6-------6-6-6-------66-----
DI--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-66-66--
AI--4-4-4-6-6-6-4-4-4-6-6-6-44-66--
EI--------4-4-4-------4-4-4----44--

On the first time through this bit just do the first two chords worth.
On the second time do the whole thing 3 times and then;

GI--6-6-6-------6-6-6/8-8-8-8--
DI--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/8-8-8-8--
AI--4-4-4-6-6-6-4-4-4/6-6-6-6--
EI--------4-4-4----------------

On the third time do the first bit about 3 times and go straight back
into the verse chords.
After the second chorus thing it goes straight into the Solo which is;
SOLO:
EI-10/7----7-8-7-----10/7-----7-8-7----7-------7-8-7-------------
BI------10-------10-------10--------10---8--10-------10-10b---8--

Sorry if thats all a bit confusing, I havent laid it out very well.
Everythings there though, just listen to the cd and play along and you'll
see what Im getting at.
Im not putting the lyrics in coz theyre all in the cd booklet anyway.
Comments, corrections, blah blah blah to ewokmuncher@hotmail.com
